A TENANT FINDS ENORMOUS 7FT BOA CONSTRICTOR AFTER MOVING INTO NEW HOME


A tenant, Marco Gavzzellie was given a nasty surprise when he moved into a new home - and found this enormous 7ft boa constrictor.  She found the reptile after helping his friend move into his home.
The huge snake was left behind by the previous owners giving the new occupants a fright.  

Mr Gavzzellie said: “I don’t think anybody would want to find a live snake in their house - we were both taken aback.”

But when they had got over the surprise they realised the snake was sick and in need of help. It turned out the reptile -  which was discovered at the house in Coventry, West Midlands - was starving to death.           

The snake has now been nursed back to health after being handed over to reptile shop owner Katie Hodgkins.  The owner of KBN Reptiles rescued the distressed snake - who she has named Barry - when she heard about its plight from a nervous customer.


Katie, 27, said: “When I arrived, Barry was in a tiny tank that was far too small for a 7ft snake. He was just skin and bones - he was in a terrible state.  “He was the shape of a Toblerone. A boa constrictor should be nice and round, and about the width of a human thigh when they’re healthy.
“But when they starve, they go sort of triangular because their bones are sticking out.”

When Barry has fully recovered, he will be taken home by a staff member at KBN Reptiles.
